Blue M with the words City of Minnetonka
This week I start teaching at the Williston Fitness Center, which is owned and operated by the City of Minnetonka. That makes me a City of Minnetonka employee. I'm adding two new yoga classes to my weekly schedule, both at Williston: Hatha Yoga on Wednesdays at 6:30 pm and Vinyasa Flow on Sundays at 9:00 am. If you are part of SilverSneakers you can take my classes for free.

Person doing a push up under the words reduce strenth and build strength

Every year since 2007 the American Psychological Association (APA) has commissioned a nationwide survey to examine levels of stress across the United States. When they conducted their study this year — one year after the beginning of the global COVID-19 pandemic — they found stress levels have risen considerably. Some of the statistics are staggering.

After seeing that report, I feel like now is a good time to mention that in addition to the gentle yoga classes I teach on Monday and Wednesday mornings, I teach strength-focused Hatha Yoga classes on Tuesday and Thursday mornings at 6:30am Central through Spirit of the Lake. Not only do these classes provide an opportunity to practice breath awareness and mindfulness that can reduce mental stress and chatter, but these Hatha classes can help you build muscle, flexibility, stability, and endurance.
